6 Unexpected Beauty, Health, & Home Uses for Rice Water

Rice water refers to the cloudy water that is leftover after washing rice in a bowl, or the excess water drained from a pot used for cooking rice in boiling water. Whichever method you prefer, rice water can be saved in a separate container once cooled, then used for a number of beauty, health, and home uses.

One of the most popular uses for rice water is for better facial skin. Simply apply rice water directly onto your face with a cotton pad, or wash your face with it before rinsing off with cool water. Do it every day for healthier, glowing skin and tighter pores.

You can also use rice water to relieve sunburn, condition your hair, soothe an upset stomach, and even add stiffness to your cotton shirts as a replacement for starch water.
